Friends of Science are challenging statements in the Harvard Business Review (HBR) as misleading to industry and not founded on scientific evidence of the IPCC Physical Sciences Working Group I of the fall, which states there has been a hiatus in global warming over the past 16 years and ‘low confidence’ of future weather extremes. Canada’s province of Ontario consulted closely with ENGOs on low-carbon initiatives and went from manufacturing heartland to dead weight in the Canadian...

Experts Warn Wildlife Response To Climate Change Is Likely Underestimated
2014-04-22 15:13:43

University of Massachusetts at Amherst Analyzing thousands of breeding bird surveys sent in by citizen scientists across the western United States and Canada over 35 years, wildlife researchers report that most of the 40 songbird species they studied shifted either northward or toward higher elevation in response to climate change, but did not necessarily do both. This means that most previous studies of potential climate change impacts on wildlife that looked only at one factor or the...

Antarctica Was A Balmy 72 Degrees Fahrenheit During The Eocene
2014-04-22 13:07:31

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Previous studies have shown that Antarctica was a much warmer continent 40 to 50 million years ago and a new report from a team of American, Dutch and Australian researchers has revealed finer details on the milder temperature that blanketed the region at the time. Published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the new report revealed that parts of Antarctica were as warm as Coastal California and sea...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Climatologists use deep-drilled ice core samples in order to understand the climate changes our planet has endured during and between the Ice Ages. A team of scientists has recently developed a new technique, described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, to confirm the age of a 120,000-year-old sample of Antarctic Ice. Scientists will be able to use the new dating technique to identify ice that is much older,...

A recent paper published by Shaun Lovejoy of McGill University, that claims 99.9% certainty of Anthropogenic Global Warming, is flawed from the outset, according to Friends of Science due to Lovejoy’s omission of known climatic variations and reliance on the discredited “Hockey Stick” graph. Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) April 17, 2014 Friends of Science are rejecting the recent paper by Shaun Lovejoy of McGill University of Montreal reported on April 11, 2014 in the online...

Arizona-Based American Cooling and Heating HVAC Company Announces New Entry in the Global Warming Series - Reviewing Current Efforts to Reverse Climate Change Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 17, 2014 Due to increasing interest in global warming and the associated effects in climate change, American Cooling and Heating has determined to help expand public awareness of current discussions and concepts. This press release is one of several in the ACH Global Warming series. A Global Effort To...

Understanding How Climatic Relationships Led To Major Ice Age Cycles
2014-04-17 07:45:44

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study has developed crucial new information about how the ice ages came about based on newly discovered relationships between deep-sea temperature and ice-volume changes. The international team of researchers, led by the University of Southampton, developed a new method for determining sea-level and deep-see temperature variability over the past 5.3 million years. Their findings were published in a recent issue of Nature. The...

Lee Siegel, University of Utah Global warming may bring more curvy jet streams during winter Last winter's curvy jet stream pattern brought mild temperatures to western North America and harsh cold to the East. A University of Utah-led study shows that pattern became more pronounced 4,000 years ago, and suggests it may worsen as Earth's climate warms. "If this trend continues, it could contribute to more extreme winter weather events in North America, as experienced this year with...

Climate Change Hidden Impacts Detailed In New Moth Study
2014-04-15 09:11:36

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new climate change study conducted on sub-Arctic moths living in Finland has revealed mixed results: moths seem to be thriving despite a warmer, wetter climate – while an as-yet-unknown force is apparently masking the expected effects of this localized climate change. "You see it getting warmer, you see it getting wetter and you see that the moth populations are either staying the same or going up. So you might think, 'Great. The...

Statistical analysis rules out natural-warming hypothesis with more than 99 percent certainty An analysis of temperature data since 1500 all but rules out the possibility that global warming in the industrial era is just a natural fluctuation in the earth's climate, according to a new study by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy. The study, published online April 6 in the journal Climate Dynamics, represents a new approach to the question of whether global warming in the...

Climate Change
2013-04-01 11:05:27

Climate change is a substantial and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods of time ranging from decades to millions of years. It might be a change in the average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions. Climate change is a result of factors that include oceanic processes, biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received buy Earth, volcanic eruptions, and plate tectonics, and human induced alterations...

Current Sea Level Rise
2013-04-01 10:39:21

The sea levels all around the world are rising. Current sea-level rise has the potential to affect human populations and the natural environment. Two key factors have contributed to the observed sea level rise. The first is thermal expansion: as the ocean water warms, it expands. The second is from the influence of land-based ice because of increased melting. The major store of water on land is found in the glaciers and the ice sheets. The rising of sea levels is one of several lines of...
